With this expansion, CRI will be able to better assist the faculty, residents, and staff on the Permian Basin Campus with their research efforts and education programs. We are pleased to announce the addition of the following staff at the Permian Basin Campus: Eva Santiago, Courtney Woody, and Jennifer Hinojosa,.
- The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is proposing changes to the regulations governing federally-funded research which will in practice apply to all clinical research. These are aimed at improving the protection of human subjects participating in clinical research while facilitating valuable research and reducing burden, delay and ambiguity for investigators.
